Dehydration Synthesis VS Hydrolysis - Bio Molecules
all the bio-molecules are established and disestablished
are a class of lipids that contain two monomers, one fatty acid bonded through an ester linkage to one alcohol (a hydrocarbon containing a hydroxyl group). The hydrocarbon chain in the alcohol monomer of waxes varies from a short linear chain to complex carbon ring structures. Waxes provide protective barriers to prevent water loss and protect cells. Waxes protect seeds and nutrients inside plant fruits and coat the surface of plant leaves, forming a cuticle to prevent water loss. Bees synthesize beeswax honeycombs for storing food and protecting offspring. Waxes prevent dehydration from body surfaces of many insects and repel water on the surface of bird feathers and some animal furs.
Dehydration Synthesis and Hydrolysis - YouTube
Protein synthesis involves building a polymer of amino acids with complex three-dimensional structure. Dehydration synthesis forms a between amino acids and releases a water molecule. A forms when a peptide bond is created between two individual amino acids, connecting the carboxyl-group carbon of one amino acid and the amino-group nitrogen of another amino acid. As additional amino acids are bonded through dehydration synthesis, a short chain () grows. are formed as peptide chain lengths reach one hundred or more amino acids. Proteins form as amino acids in one or more polypeptides chemically interact to create a complex three-dimensional structure.
